The French pages of the Immages d'Épinal impressed with flour glue on the aged and worn wood of the tumbler envelop the most attentive visitors in the perfume of the Belle Epoque.
In that period the inventions and advances of technology and science were unparalleled with past eras. Benefits of these discoveries led to remarkable living standards and social improvements. Electric lighting, radio, automobile, cinema, pasteurization, and other conveniences all contributed to an improvement in living conditions and the spread of a sense of optimism.
The streets and streets of the city were full of colors: advertising posters, shop windows with all kinds of goods, elegant warehouses.
This mentality and this way of facing life had also conditioned the productive sectors. Throughout Europe a series of artistic currents had developed which led to the theory that any human production could become an artistic expression. Every object and every place became an elegant decoration, a floral motif, a curved line and arabesque .
An "unconventional" exhibition space inside an ancient mill, dedicated to art ... but not only.
We are within the walls of an ancient factory, a place full of life, where peasant ingenuity and mastery knew how to relate well to everyday life and with all the nuances of social life.
We are therefore talking about a space for aggregation and dissemination, aimed at providing opportunities for meeting and exchange useful for giving visibility to one's creativity or ingenuity.
We believe in the importance of cultural promotion, development and dissemination of all forms of art in all its expressions, from figurative to performance art: history itself is art for us to cultivate and preserve.
The philosophy is that of a dynamic collaborative community , a virtuous circuit that promotes self-determination, where one's ideas are enhanced by giving them visibility, where intellectual exchange is encouraged through the skills and enthusiasm of each participating figure.
And this is how potentially the Molino also becomes a small co-working space , where it is possible to share and enhance one's own peculiarities and expressions, but also an open and virtuous container that finds reason in the proposals, initiatives and contributions that can come from the individual. or by groups, whether formal or not.
We believe in the circulation and sharing of ideas, in the spontaneous promotion of culture as an engine for the growth and awareness of the community.
Just as history is everywhere and for everyone, art is too. And it is everyone's moral duty to preserve and disseminate it.
